Another Sub-Par Game From Lundqvist

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,

In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is King.

If this means the Islanders represent the Battle of New York Royalty in the wake of their 5-3 victory over the Rangers at the Garden on Friday night, then so be it, for the position on our town’s hockey throne has been at least temporarily vacated by Henrik Lundqvist....

Three of the four against him — the fifth was an empty-netter — dribbled through, one on a penalty shot. For the first time in his career, Lundqvist has allowed three goals or more in seven straight starts. He is 10-15-2 with a plebian 2.77 GAA and .905 save percentage.

“I’m not doing my job,” Lundqvist told The Post. “It’s my job to clean up the mistakes and I’m not doing that.

“When we come into the room, all we can ask of one another as teammates is for everyone to work hard and for everyone to care,” he said. “I know I’m doing that, but it’s very difficult not to help my team the way I want to. It’s very disappointing.”
